In 1814, Britain dispatched 30,000 troops to Nepal. The arrogant British officers and soldiers thought they could crush the army was mainly composed of mountain people's 12,000 Nepalese Gurkha soldiers with their fine equipment. And the fact is just the opposite, It took the British army two years of blood bathing to finally win. This war is a lesson for the British, and they are impressed by the fighting capacity of the Gorkha soldiers. After peace, Britain signed a treaty with Nepal and enjoyed the privilege of recruiting Gurka soldiers, this tradition continues today. Gurkha trousers and Gurkha shorts were used by British soldiers in the 1940s and 1950s. Because of this special status, the appellation of this kind of trousers has been retained.

My second pair loving it. The cotton is much better and softer than my first pair. It would be great if slightly thicker As other colour options. Please make them in khaki green, navy or black!
Excellent quality. Very pleased with the substantial material which should last a long time. And if your shorts are to warm on the hottest days, you can roll them up like the Brits did.
So pleased to finally have a pair of Gurkha-esque shorts. Very well made, excellent fabric. Well done!
Very impressed by the quality of the material and workmanship.
Very comfortable. I find they fit best with the belts fastened above the hip, typical for clothing of that era.
Spacious pockets. The buttoned flaps on the back pockets are nice if you tend to worry about losing your wallet or phone.
I almost never wear shorts, but I think they look pretty good on me.
For reference, I am 5’10”, weigh 160 lbs. and ordered the size 4.

Would have chosen the ported model after thinking about it. I am getting used to fastening the waist straps having to enlarge the buckle holes to permit the fastening .
Have washed the shorts the first time and will see how they come out.
These shorts are really nice, well made, with fine details. They harken back to the famous Gurkhas (I think). I had a pair of similar shorts 25+ years ago, so its fun to have a similar retro pair so many years later.
They are exactly what I was expecting. Thank you.
Do you have the same item in a larger size as 14 ,
Love the fabric, fit and style!
I’ve been looking for a Ghurka shorts for 20 years now, and these are perfect! The fit is great, the quality should last another 20 years, even the color is just right.
Got really into Gurkha trousers and came across Non Stock/Bronson. To be honest wasn't sure what their products would be like in real life, and man do they deliver! Got the shorts in the mail yesterday and they're awesome, really good quality in material, design and construction, and great attention to detail. Super happy, just ordered a pair of the long pants. This company is sick.
Very well made and the built-in belt is practical and stylish. I'll be getting another pair.
